Peninsula Grammar feature formed timber veneer pendant.
FJMT Architects designed Peninsula Grammar Library is a nod to the vast leafy grounds of the Mt Eliza school. The second level vaulted ceiling enjoys natural daylight from the high set windows. The grand ceiling height was a perfect opportunity to create a feature suspended piece with a nod to the Australian bush.
Bluelab Design created a story board and concept for a timber feature light with the brief received from FJMT Architects. The concept design was created from the story board and further developed between Bluelab Design and FJMT Architects.
Formed veneer was prepared by Veneerform in Brunswick. Bluelab Design set out cutting the shapes from created patterns, the largest petal at 1200mm long to the smallest at 600mm long. The petals were meticulously prepared creating smooth soft edges and clean surfaces. A painted green petal on the lower side to the petal with washed edges to further acknowledge the buildings setting among the gum trees.
The construction of the timber veneer forms were a labor of love by the entire Bluelab Design team. With such a brave design the entire design team were excited to see the feature light coming together. When the product was finally delivered and installed, the hard work was well worth it, Peninsula Grammar library feature timber veneer light sits proudly with in the learning space above the librarian desk.
